The community covenant complements the Armed Forces covenant and is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces community, which includes serving personnel, their families and veterans.
The aims of the community covenant include: to encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces community in their areas, and vice versa; to promote understanding and awareness among the public of issues affecting the Armed Forces community; to recognise and remember the sacrifices made by the Armed Forces community; and to encourage activities which help to integrate the Armed Forces community into local life.
Organisations, including education charities, can find out more about the Community Covenant Grant Scheme criteria as well as guidance and an application form on the Ministry of Defence website at: www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/AboutDefence/WhatWeDo/Personnel/Welfare/ArmedForcesCovenant/ArmedForcesCommunityCovenant.
